In the year since the 1992 U.S. figure skating championships, here are some of the questions with which followers of the pairs competition have been titillated: Will Calla dump Rocky the trucker? Are Jenni and Todd skating cheek to cheek on and off the ice? If so, can Natasha find happiness with Rocky? And what will become of Scott? Soap opera fans, do we have a sport for you.
